San Pedro & Malibu

After spending too many days cooped up in the house, 2/3 of my siblings and I spontaneously decided to go for a scenic drive. Having forcefully rained and thundered a few days prior, we were delighted to see that it was a beautiful day.

The first stop on our drive was my personal favorite: San Pedro. Nestled behind the large, commercial Port of Los Angeles is an absolutely gorgeous spot to relax and sightsee. I plug in “Korean Friendship Bell” in Google Maps to be taken to this beautiful view. Once you reach the Korean Friendship Bell, continue straight and make a right-hand turn on West Paseo Del Mar. There are countless spots to step out, take a picture or two, or walk down closer to the water (what we did).

Beautiful, right?

Our next stop was supposed to be the Santa Monica Pier. I had a feeling it would be closed, but we figured we’d give it a shot. Upon arriving, it was PACKED. And the pier was closed. Since Malibu is only ~15 minutes from the Santa Monica Pier, we decided to go there. We randomly came across the California State Park: Malibu Lagoon State Beach. Seeing that it was an hour before sunset, we payed the reasonable $3 parking fee and began to walk around.

Loved how the light was reflecting on the water today!

The sun decided to set around 455pm. It was a picture-perfect sight. To the left of this area was a ton of tide pools. Definitely cool to take a look at the sea anemone and crabs.

Malibu sunset!

Overall, it was a wonderful day.
